Elijah and the Widows Sun, Ford Madox Brown, 1864

This card features real art based on one of three illustrations for the Bible. The story is of a mother whose son is raised from the dead by the prophet Elijah, a subject selected by Brown from a list of possible themes submitted to him by the Brothers.

The painting is the only one completed with oil, commissioned in 1864 by a Brighton wine merchant, James Trist.
